    Al Gore's youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals. The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests. The...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 03/18/2014 | Paul Bois
    The founder of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, notorious for leading hateful protests against gay rights, is actually a Democrat with long history of endorsing Democratic candidates. On Tuesday, Politico provided some background on Phelps' political history, most of which saw him endorsing Democrat candidates and running for office a number of times as a Democrat. In the 1990's, Phelps ran in three Kansas Democratic primaries for Governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving only 15% of the vote. He also ran for Senator in 1992, receiving 31% of the vote, and for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997....

    2016: If Democrats really mean it when they say global warming is a bigger threat than terrorism, why settle for President Hillary Clinton? This is a job for superman Al Gore. Secretary of State John Kerry calls climate change "perhaps the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." A billionaire hedge fund manager and Obama donor plans to spend $100 million this year on attack ads against Democrats who don't agree. If a warming climate is so important, why give Hillary the Democratic nomination? The only climate-linked achievement Clinton could cite in her 2008 campaign was an obscure 2007 amendment...

    It appears that CNN is now going all in on its assertion that there is no climate change debate. Despite the absurdity of a news organization openly declaring that it is closed to any arguments to the contrary, the CNN Newsroom anchor Carol Costello has proudly declared her mind closed on this topic. In an opinion piece published at CNN.Com, Costello boldly took pride in her refusal to consider facts contrary to her belief in the very first sentence: "There is no debate." Got that? Cased closed and so is her mind as she went on to prove:

    Aside from being an essayist, novelist and screenwriter, Gore Vidal was a grade-one gossip, his published writings and private conversation stuffed with rumour and conspiratorial hints. But now, less than 18 months after Vidal passed into history, he is himself subject to the most reputation-destructive scuttlebutt there is: the suggestion that he may have been a paedophile. In connection with a new book about Vidal, his half-sister and a nephew have hinted that he may have had a secret passion for underage boys. And Vidal more or less admitted it himself, writing in his memoir Palimpsest that he was "attracted...

    **SNIP** The province’s largest and last coal plant, in Nanticoke, is scheduled to shut down next month. The new bill, if passed, will make it illegal for the government to set up other coal plants in future. The legislation is mostly symbolic: it will apply only to electricity plants, allowing other industries – such as steel and cement manufacturing – to continue burning coal. But Ms. Wynne touted it as expression of the province’s commitment to cleaner sources of energy.

    A famed man of letters and sexual liaisons who never had a kind word for traditionalism, the late Gore Vidal hobnobbed with the rich and influential and locked horns with William F. Buckley on television. During one of these debates, Vidal called Buckley a “pro-crypto-Nazi,” prompting Buckley to call him a “queer.” Only one of these accusations was true, but both pale in comparison to a charge Vidal’s own relatives are now leveling at the writer. That, as the Daily Mail puts it, he was a “globe-trotting paedophile who preyed on underage boys.” [snip] his is why Vidal has plenty...

As I listened to Obama lie about his lies, I wondered if Obama applied Al Gore’s rationale to allow Obama’s mind to excuse his lie. Al Gore used the words “over-representation” when he lied. However, Al Gore never emphasized his lies by adding the word “period” to assure the people of the correctness of his lie. Al Gore said, in an...

The scorekeepers of global-warming alarmism, the U.N.

A leaked draft version of the report concedes the very inconvenient truth, and casts doubt on the claim that man plays a role in triggering "extreme weather." Since the planet hasn't been warming...

    Having grown up on a farm in California’s San Joaquin Valley, I have seen firsthand how environmental extremists smashed a flourishing agricultural region. Citing the need to protect a three-inch baitfish called the Delta smelt, green activists succeeded in getting farmers’ water supplies drastically cut. As some of the world’s most productive soil degenerated into a drought-stricken landscape, farmers — some of whose families had worked these lands for generations — packed up and left. The local economy sank, with unemployment in the Valley now doubling the national average. President Obama’s recent speech unveiling his “new national climate action plan”...

The IRS scandal currently engulfing Washington isn’t the only episode in which Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the agency’s tax-exempt organizations office, has come under fire for playing partisan politics in a nonpartisan entity.

    Al Jazeera America has hired a lobbying firm to advocate for the broadcasting company on Capitol Hill, according to reports. The media company Al Jazeera America Holdings, which recently bought Al Gore’s cable news station Current TV, has hired the DLA Piper law firm to conduct “informational communications regarding client's cable television channel,” Politico reported. The global law firm, which has 4,200 lawyers located in more than 30 countries throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, has reportedly been educating lawmakers about the company’s plans to be based in New York City and open bureaus across the...

    Aides to former Democratic Vice President Al Gore have failed to respond to a recent Al-Jazeera TV broadcast, in which a top imam affirmed the death penalty for anyone who quits Islam. Gore sold his Current TV network to Al-Jazeera, which now plans to extend its broadcast into the United States this summer, according to Ashok Sinha, vice president of corporate communications at Current TV/Al-Jazeera America.

    Whatever it is, and whatever quirks and contradictions I’ve observed, nothing prepared me for the rogue wave of hubris that crashed onto the talk show shores last week as Al Gore, rising like Poseidon from the sea, graced us with his latest global treatise, a 592-page tome entitled simply “The Future.” Now honestly, even Edward Gibbon limited his immortal history to the specific decline and fall of the Roman Empire. And it’s hard to imagine those industrious chroniclers of Western civilization, Will and Ariel Durant, embarking on a quixotic compendium to explain “The Past.” Then again, the restraints common to...
  • APNewsBreak: Government says warming climate threatens survival of snow-loving wolverine

    02/04/2013 5:30:19 AM PST · by SoFloFreeper · 16 replies
    The tenacious wolverine, a snow-loving carnivore sometimes called the “mountain devil,” could soon join the list of species threatened by climate change —a dubious distinction putting it in the ranks of the polar bear and several other animals the government says will lose crucial habitat as temperatures rise. Federal wildlife officials Friday proposed Endangered Species Act protections for the wolverine in the Lower 48 states. That’s a step twice denied under the Bush administration, then delayed in 2010 when the Obama administration said other imperiled species had priority. It likely means an end to trapping the animals for their fur...

    Al Gore: George Soros Should Have More Influence Over American Politics February 2, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield Apparently controlling the White House and the Foreign Policy of the country via the Soros Money Machine isn’t enough. Not until the entire Senate and Congress bows to the new Emperor of America. Billionaires influencing American politics is bad. Really bad. It’s a grave threat to Democracy. Unless they’re liberals. During an appearance with CBS anchor and host Charlie Rose at the 92nd Street Y in New York City on January 29, former Vice President Al Gore said that progressivism cannot compete with...
  • Gore presses Obama to ‘follow through’ on climate change promises (just use executive powers)

    President Obama "has to follow through" on his commitment to address climate change, even if it means using executive powers to get around congressional gridlock, according to former Vice President Al Gore. Obama should "move boldly" on the agenda he articulated in his second inaugural address, which included strong words about addressing climate change, Gore said in an interview on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS." While efforts to tackle climate change would run into GOP opposition in Congress, Gore said the president had ample powers to bear from the executive branch in addressing the issue. "There are some actions he can...

    It is fun to watch Big Oil critic Al Gore squirm as he is questioned about selling out to the oil-rich dictatorship in Qatar. But his sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera is not a laughing matter. This transaction is a homeland security threat that violates numerous U.S. laws. To his credit, funnyman David Letterman got close to the truth when he asked the former Democratic vice-president, “Now why do we think of Al Jazeera as something not right going on there in terms of, in terms of the good for Americans? Why do we think that they may...

    "...Now, many of us have known or heard of someone who picked a skyrocketing stock through dumb luck or investment acumen and made a killing in that stock as they held on to it for a few years. With this guy however, lightning just keeps striking – over and over again. So he comes out of the Washington with a bunch of debt. Then he finds himself, a man who never worked in the private sector much less start a business - having stock options dumped in his lap by two corporations whose shares turn out to be the biggest...
